8. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
"Whatever happened to our rock and roll?" howled BRMC on their debut album in 2001. They tapped into the classic rock moves of the past 50 years: leather, attitude, guitars, psychedelic drones and shoegaze anthems. Hell, they even did a semi-country music album that still had the old rock 'n' roll posturing. Clever.
